The creature comedy Bhediya under the direction of Amar Kaushik has been released in theaters. Critics’ comments on the film are good. Prior to the release of this film, two films that were released in theaters – Utthi and Drishyam 2 did tremendous business on their respective scales. Both the movies were released in a one week interval and now Bhediya has also arrived in the same week interval. Since the mood at the box office is currently in favor of Bollywood due to the content, there are many reasonable expectations in business circles on Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon’s leading man.
Bhediya’s reviews are excellent but if you look at the advance booking of the film, it is below Ramsetu, Samrat Prithviraj Jug Jug Jio Gangubai Kathiawadi and Shamshera. In this one, except for Gangubai Mo, the box office of the rest of the films turned out to be a disaster. This can be a scary thing for the wolf. According to a Pinkvilla report, Bhediya has been released on around 2,500 screens. In the movies mentioned above for comparison, if you take Varun’s Jug Jug Jio, it earned 9.28 crores on the first day. If viewed on this basis, it is seen that Bhediya earns less than Rs 9.28 crore on the first day. But different reports in the business circle have something more to say.
In these reports, the film’s first-day earnings are counted in the range of Rs 10–15 crore. Although it is almost impossible for Bhediya to earn 15 crores. And that is because there is already a strong film in the form of Drishyam 2 opposite Varun’s film at the box office. A film that is the first option of the majority of the public that goes to the cinema for riding on the historical word of mouth. The film also earned more than Rs 100 crore in the first week and its strong attraction is visible at the box office even on normal days. The second week of Drishyam has just started, so its effect is still there.
Weaker than Drishyam 2, but Varun Dhawan’s film is going to make its budget profitable
In fact, even on the eighth day, the morning occupation of Drishyam 2 is more than Bhediya. According to the Koimoi movie website, Drishyam’s morning occupancy is between 14 and 16 percent. While the morning occupancy of Bhediya on the first day is between 12 and 15 percent. Drishyam 2’s strength is clearly visible. Anyway, in almost all reports, the estimated gain of Drishyam 2 is in double digits on the 8th day. Bhediya’s pool of points is weaker than Drishyam 2. According to many reports, it seems that Drishyam 2’s win on the 8th day is going to be higher than Bhediya’s win on the 1st day. Even though Bhediya looks weak in trade figures, it seems to be a definite success.
Actually, Bhediya has been made on a balanced budget. Between 40 and 60 million rupees. According to a report from our partner website ‘India Today’, Bhediya can fetch a Rs 10 crore opening in the domestic market on the first day. In the presence of Drishyam 2, according to the scale of the film, this collection would be called the best. All reports indicate that Bhediya can comfortably do business for more than Rs 35 crores in the first weekend. That is, this film will easily be able to withdraw its budget from theaters in two weeks. This is a great trading signal for Bollywood. Because the wolf only seeks profit. There is the possibility of a nice return for the producers in exchange for the digital and satellite rights to the film. The film seems safe in all aspects. And if the grip is even slightly better than estimates, the Bhediya could also become a big hit.
What is the story of the wolf?
Apart from Varun Dhawan-Kriti Sanon in Bhediya, Deepak Dobriyal, Abhishek Banerjee, Saurabh Shukla, Dosham Bayong and Madang Pai have played important roles. The story of the film is that of a young man who has gone to build a road project in Arunachal Pradesh. For profit, he is making a plan to find a way through the forest. Some people don’t want that. There is also a rumor of a mysterious insect in the forest. In an accident in the forest, Varun is bitten by a wolf and turns into a eager wolf. The incident changes Varun’s life. After this, what kind of problems they have to face, whether they can bail out or not, this is shown in the story of the movie.
